Become An Instructor

Be A Health Leader In Your Community

The doors to our school opened in 2014, and since that time, we have trained and graduated Culinary Nutrition Experts in 73 countries.

In addition to the training we offer in our flagship Culinary Nutrition Expert Program, we offer our graduates the opportunity to become a part of our extended team as Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructors.

As a Certified Instructor, you have the opportunity to get out in your community and start teaching classes and workshops that we have created exclusively for this purpose.

We want to see you out in the world sharing all you know (and continue to learn). We put every effort into supporting your success.


Become an Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructor in 14 weeks


The first step in becoming a Certified Instructor is to complete the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program at a certified level.

We run our Culinary Nutrition Expert Program every September through December. By January, our graduates (those who successfully complete the quizzes and assignments) are qualified to enrol as Academy of Culinary Nutrition Certified Instructors.

3 Steps to becoming a Certified Instructor:

  1. Register for and successfully complete the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program
  2. Enrol as a Certified Instructor and review the materials in the Teaching Resources Portal
  3. Schedule your first class!

Once you begin teaching these classes, we will include you and your classes in our newsletter, and promote across social media. You become a part of our Academy of Culinary Nutrition Global Team.
